Track Name: Overripe Flowers
house of overripe flowers
house of mysterious circuitry
subtle rhythms thrum and flow
entangle in braided river forms

the tide comes in
a slow cymbal swell
floods the heart
undoes the world
Track Name: Fox Got My Tongue
my tongue is a red dove by the roadside
a fox found her sleeping and maimed her
but she got away
and I rue the day

so, my love, let me explain
a fox got my tongue
my tongue is a fiery dove
so when your gloved hand reaches for my touch
and comes back with only feathers and dust
when I've said too much
and I can't come home
a dove's blood is pooling by the road
I will find the words for this feeling one day
until that day this is my only way

this is the hallowed wound
this is the heart
this is the burning river
laced with red stars

fly across the world
my little red dove
leave me mute
leave me weightless and full of love
